We’re Only $36,000 Away!!

By | Keeping Faith, MC Squared, MC Squared: Church Leaders, MC Squared: Parents, MC Squared: Retreat Organizers | No Comments

Thanks to your help and support, we are only $36,000 away from meeting our $300,000 match for the Evergreen Project! Starting last year, a donor came to us with this matching opportunity to completely fund the Evergreen Project. We are blown away by the generosity and selflessness of all who have helped but we still need your help to completely fund this renovation. Any gift, big or small, is appreciated!

As we look to continue to improve camp, our guests are always on the front of our minds. Our goal throughout this whole campaign is to increase capacity so more people can hear the message of Jesus Christ, improve the safety of our guests, and focus on stewardship towards the local church.

We again want to thank you for your prayers and support. Without you none of this would be possible!

IT’S OFFICIAL! Construction on the Evergreen Project has begun!

By | Giving, Keeping Faith, MC Squared | No Comments

We are so excited to announce that we have broken ground and are starting construction on the Evergreen Project! Our team has been working hard to prepare for this expansion on the current Evergreen building and we are thrilled to begin this renovation!

None of this could have been possible without your continued prayers and support. We want to thank all of you for your generosity and partnering with us as we pursue making camp better and allowing more guests to come and hear the Good News of Jesus Christ preached.

We are also only $36,000 away from our $300,000 matching opportunity! Every dollar donated throughout this year, up to $300,000, will be matched by one of our generous donors. Any donations beyond the $300,000 match will go toward our Keeping Faith Campaign and will allow us to continue to increase capacity, improve safety, and continue to focus on stewardship as we look to pouring back into our guests.

Update on the Evergreen Project!

By | Keeping Faith, MC Squared, Projects, Updates | No Comments

We are getting closer and closer to our $300,000 matching goal! So far, we have raised over $231,000 since early December! We want to thank you all so much for your generosity and support. As you can see, we have already begun dropping trees around the Evergreen building as we prepare for the renovation. We are so excited to see everything coming together! However, we still need your help in raising $69,000 more this year. Any gift, whether big or small, goes a long way in helping us serve others and continue to preach Jesus to thousands every year!

We again thank you all so much for your financial and prayerful support!

Over Half Way to Our $300,000 Matching Goal!

By | Giving, Keeping Faith, Projects | No Comments

Thank you 167,000 times over!

 

It is through your generosity that we were able to raise $334,000, during the month of December, for the Keeping Faith Campaign. We received $167,000 from individual donors that was matched by another devoted friend of camp. Your generosity is evident and appreciated.

I am humbled by the faithfulness of God’s people. I am humbled by how God uses this place to aid the local church and further His kingdom. The work that is done here is because of faithful friends like you.

For us, there is no greater calling in this world than preaching Jesus, living Jesus, loving Jesus and worshipping Jesus. When Jesus is the main focus and impacts a life, the ripple effect is immeasurable.

In the long run, the Keeping Faith Evergreen Project provides us with the opportunity to become financially sustainable by increasing our income so that it matches our expenses. This, in turn, will allow us to focus our donations on facility upkeep, the guest experience, maintaining affordable programmed camps and improving the campus.

You can still help. Every donation counts. We have until the end of 2017 to raise another $133,000. Funds that can all be matched!

As you reflect on how God has impacted your life, and thousands of other lives, please prayerfully consider joining us in this mission with a financial gift and/or volunteering your time to help construct this project. Your gifts help us share the hope that is found in Jesus, impact lives for the Kingdom, and strengthen the ministry of the local church.

Our ministry depends on the generous support of churches and individuals.

Thank you for responding with joyful generosity!

In His Arms,

Keeping Faith Rewind: Sydney’s Story

This week’s Keeping Faith Rewind is Sydney’s story. Sydney has been a summer camp attendee for the past 9 years and counting. She’s an example of students whose whole lives have been impacted and shaped by the ministry of Miracle Camp and Retreat Center. Enjoy rewatching Sydney’s story.

As you do, remember that we have just announced a $300,000 matching gift opportunity that will allow more campers like Sydney to attend events like summer camp or youth group winter retreat each year.

Announcing: Matching Gift Opportunity

By | Giving, Keeping Faith, Projects | No Comments

We just recently announced the launch of the Evergreen Project, part of our Keeping Faith Campaign. We received exciting news shortly after: a very good friend of Miracle Camp has agreed to issue a $300,000 matching challenge toward this project. This means that every gift given will be matched dollar for dollar up to this amount.

This project will enable us to host up to 850 more people each year…which is so many more lives that are able to grow closer to God. You can give toward this project online at miraclecamp.com/keepingfaith.

Here’s a few drawings of the project for those who are interested!

Announcing: The Evergreen Project

By | Giving, Keeping Faith, MC Squared, Projects | No Comments

Fifty years of history. One unchanging mission.

Whether Miracle Camp impacted your life 5 weeks, 5 months, 5 years or 5 decades ago, we remain committed to facilitating life change by helping people grow closer to Jesus and supporting the ministry of the local church.

We are humbled by the impact Miracle Camp has had on the kingdom. When we look back at what God has done, we see glimpses of His goodness and a constant stream of lives impacted. A stream that we know creates a ripple effect on the kingdom; people who have crossed the line of faith, accepted their call into ministry, or had their faith strengthened and then impact others for Christ. We believe God has positioned this place to be a catalyst that impacts the world for Christ.

As you reflect on how God has impacted your life, and thousands of other lives, please prayerfully consider joining us in this mission with a gift. You will be making a significant Kingdom investment. Miracle Camp depends upon the voluntary generosity of affiliate churches and supporting individuals. Your gifts help us share the hope that is found in Jesus, impact lives for the kingdom, and strengthen the ministry of the local church.

Keeping Faith Rewind: Emma’s Story

This week’s Keeping Faith Rewind is Emma’s Story. This story is from Emma’s experience at summer camp several years ago.

As we approach the Thanksgiving season, these stories remind us of all we have to be grateful for in the ministry of Miracle Camp and Retreat Center. We are so thankful to God for all the lives He changes on this small piece of property.

We’re also really thankful to all of you who, through your prayers and support, make stories like this possible.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving week and enjoy Emma’s story!
